Cell site simulators, AKA "stingrays," essentially spoof cell phone towers, tricking any device within range into connecting to the device instead of the tower, allowing law enforcement to sweep up communications content, as well as locate and track the person in possession of a specific phone or other electronic device.

From an outright ban to warrant requirements, Michael Boldin reports on seven states (and counting) that are considering legislation to take on this unconstitutional surveillance tool.

Thomas Jefferson vehemently opposed Hamilton’s bait-and-switch saying that the Constitution only allows the means which are “necessary,” and not just those which are merely “convenient” for effecting the enumerated powers.

With news of a group and businessman suing the Southern Poverty Law Center this week, we’ve heard from people asking if TAC will do the same.

On this episode of Good Morning Liberty, Michael Boldin talks about his profile page on SPLC's "Extremist Files" - it's been up since 2012 - and answers that question about a lawsuit.

The federal "shutdown" is showing a serious need to decentralize national parks - but the land issue goes much deeper. On this episode of Good Morning Liberty, Michael Boldin reviews 6 major issues that are caused by the feds owning huge swaths of land, where symptoms of the disease are most visible in Western states.

You absolutely can't rely on the federal government to limit its own powers. Prominent founders repeatedly said the states and the people would be the true guardians of liberty. But do we put that into practice today? On this episode of Good Morning Liberty, Michael Boldin goes over three strategic approaches to stopping federal programs without relying on the feds to do anything - and reports on a number of bills for 2019 that put these strategies into practice right now.

The severance of the American colonies from Great Britain began, in large part, over the constitutional implications of British taxation. However, a concerted tax revolt in the early 1790s, the Whiskey Rebellion, was viewed as an existential threat to the fledgling United States. In this video, Dave Benner explains why.

The border wall - and the partial "shutdown" is getting coverage all over. On this episode of Good Morning Liberty, Michael Boldin covers the views of three experts on the issue - one constitutional attorney and two constitutional scholars and law professors.

They don't teach this in government schools.

The Michigan Personal Freedom Act of 1855 defied the hated fugitive slave act and helped nullify it in practice.

As one of the first pieces of legislation under the United States Constitution, the Judiciary Act of 1789 created a branch of government that did not exist under the Articles of Confederation. However, the law contained several aspects that proved controversial. In this video, historian Dave Benner explains why.

Last week, Pres. Trump signed the Farm Bill into law. Beyond all the unconstitutional funding in the bill, a bit of a bright spot, the feds will no longer treat industrial hemp as a controlled substance. So what does this mean for the hemp industry - and for CBD as well? Is everything "legal" now as many people are reporting, or is there something else going on behind the scenes? Michael Boldin helps unravel the many layers of federal prohibition in this episode of Good Morning Liberty.

Quote of the Day:

John Jay returned from Britain in 1794, carrying with him treaty that normalized relations between the United States and its former mother country. He was greeted to a hero’s welcome by the Federalists, but was held in contempt by Republicans. The country became bitterly divided, and Jay’s likeness was hung in effigy in every corner of the country. In this video, Dave Benner explains why.

“Equitable sharing” is a federal asset forfeiture program that incentivizes local police to act like federal agents – and take people’s property when they were never convicted of a crime.

On Tuesday, the Trump administration rolled out its new federal regulation banning bump-fire stocks.

Anyone who possesses one of the devices will have 90 days to turn in or destroy it once the final rule is published in the federal register. That is expected to happen this Friday.

On this episode of Good Morning Liberty, Michael Boldin notes that the ban is wholly unconstitutional. And it is almost identical, in process, to a failed attempt by the Obama administration to ban M855 ammunition. But it can be nullified through state, local, and individual resistance.

Of all things, the most controversial issue of President George Washington’s first term swirled around a bank. While Alexander Hamilton championed the establishment of the First Bank of the United States, Thomas Jefferson believed it would endanger liberty, ignite a constitutional crisis, and set a dangerous precedent.

December 15, 1791: "Bill of Rights Day"

You’re probably familiar with the preamble to the Constitution. Maybe you even memorized it in school. But most government-schools never teach that the Bill of Rights also has its own preamble.

Dec 15, 2018 is the 227th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights. Thomas Jefferson - and others - had very strong views on what made up the foundation of the entire Constitution.

In 1778, the young American states secured a vital alliance with France, helping to overcome the British in the War for Independence. By 1797, that alliance crumbled and war between the United States and France seemed inevitable. But how did things change so quickly?

Thomas Jefferson rejected today's version of the general welfare clause of the constitution, saying it would enable congress to "take possession of a boundless field of power” which would give it the means “to do whatever evil they please."
